Secrets of our
Design Curator

Louisa Richwhite

Founder

Violet Darkling

Violet Darkling is the alter ego of New Zealand born designer Louisa Richwhite. Inspired by the darkness and all things nocturnal, teamed with her outdoor roots and quirky humor, ‘Violet Darkling’ reflects a desire to make life just a little more magical.

Louisa's keen eye and witty imagination results in a bittersweet contradiction of feminine elements touched by a dark and daring allure. The quality is second to none. She only uses semi precious stones of an exceptional cut and quality, including sapphires, diamonds, tourmalines, topaz, amethysts and citrines.

Louisa's ability to transport us back to our childhood is developed through her distinctive collection where she reminds us of the fears, the magic and our fascination with ‘Things of the Night’.

Favourite Things
Travel

I love Tokyo, there's no place like it.  I take a lot of inspiration from this city and culture, from their attention to detail, their love of pastel colours, the toy and gaming parlours. You are filled with visual stimulation in this vibrant city.
